It's been interesting reading some of the recent transfer stuff in the last few weeks, not because I believe anything I read in some of the so called 'news' papers, but because so much of it has been either completely contradictory or completely made up. One of the worst things about all this guff is that some rather angry fans have been launching into attacking certain Arsenal players for no good reason, just because they have believed the ludicrous spin of a dishonest or inaccurate news story.
For example one paper has been running one story saying that Nasri is going to stay and then another saying that he is demanding 160 grand a week, utterly nonsensical stuff. The Gervinho nonsense has also taken the Michael, one gutter radio source claimed he had signed for Arsenal, then moments later the Lille chairman is quoted as saying that they have had only one bid for the player, which has been quickly rejected.
Some people need to wise up, there are a lot of people out there peddling utter rubbish in order to sell newspapers, generate hits and advertising revenue. It is so transparent and predictable. The rage that has been vented a two players in particular, Nasri and Diaby, has been so very misplaced and misguided. These idiots who shoot off without engaging their brains would do well to realise that this kind of behaviour is completely counterproductive and likely to harm the club that they support.
We have made one signing, Carl Jenkinson, and he looks like a useful addition to the squad, the fact that he is a big Gooner is also a bonus. I have this little suggestion for Arsenal fans, how about we think before we cast judgement, how about we use our brains to separate the invented from the reliable? There is no point getting carried away with the fictional drivel floating around at the moment, let's wait for reliable concrete information before letting loose.
